Ajax boss Frank de Boer is the bookmakers’ favourite to replace head coach Tim Sherwood at White Hart Lane.

Sherwood still has over a year left on his current contract, but it is widely expected that he will be given the chop this summer.

It had been reported that Spurs had contacted Ajax to inform the Amsterdam club that Frank was on their managerial shortlist, but this was strongly denied by the North London outfit on Wednesday.

Nevertheless, Ronald thinks that the prospect of his sibling taking charge of Tottenham is very plausible.

He told Sky Sports: “It is a nice club with history, one of the nicest clubs in the Premiership. The club has ambition and the budget for it.

“Frank knows some of the players there, like [Christian] Eriksen and [Jan] Vertonghen – [Nacer] Chadli and [Mousa] Dembele too – there’s lots of quality at the club. I think he can build something.

“Frank’s feeling is important, the club’s philosophy is as well – what kind of football they want to play – that will be decisive. He will take his time, to think about it.”

Prior to becoming first-team boss at Ajax in 2010, Frank coached the club’s youth team.

He also acted as assistant to national coach Bert van Marwijk during the Netherlands’ World Cup campaign in South Africa four years ago.

During three and a half seasons in the Ajax hot-seat, Frank has guided the Dutch giants to four Eredivisie titles.

His illustrious playing career including spells at Ajax, Barcelona, Galatasaray and Rangers. The former left-back won 112 senior international caps for the Netherlands, scoring 13 goals.
